Longhand to play at Studio Live

Longhand is a co-operative trio comprised of Juno Award winner Syke Brooks (drums, guitar and vocals), Galaxie rising star Russell Sholberg (bass and saw) and Tony Wilson (guitar and harmonica).

These three versatile musicians are also members of the following

ensembles: The Inhabitants, Veda Hille, Peggy Lee Band, Pugs and Crows to name a few, as well as being the rhythm section of the Tony Wilson 5tet.

The ensemble recently released a recording in the late spring of 2011. The band has toured coastal British Columbia several

times and Alberta and is active playing in Vancouver clubs such as El Barrio, the Libra Room and 1067.

Longhand has a varied repertoire ranging from high-energy free improv to melancholy tunes with beautiful melodies. Longhand explores a wide range of sonic possibilities with varied instrumental configurations like classic guitar trio to harmonica saw and

percussion, or harmonica, vocals and bass to offer a few examples. Along with original music, Longhand offers their unique interpretations of jazz, blues and classic Motown tunes.
